As expected, Hagatha is a Shaman Legendary minion and she has a very versatile effect.
The card was revealed by @PlayHearthstone on Twitter:
Swampqueen Hagatha is one of these cases where the cardbox is barely enough to fit the explanation for the whole card. "Teach it 2 Shaman spells" means that you will get the Discover option twice and the Horror (a tribeless 5/5 token minion) will cast them as a Battlecry. Note that if you Discover a targeted spell, you can choose who to target with it - it's not random. According to Peter Whalen, the first choice is random but the second will offer only non-targetable spells (like Bloodlust or Chain Lightning) if your first choice was a targeted spell.
Now that we are done with the explanation of the card, we can try and guesstimate how good it's going to be. Even though it offers a versatile Build-a-spell-like effect and it has a very interesting design, Swampqueen Hagatha is a huge tempo loss on turn 7 and requires a lot of setting-up and foresight. On the other hand, you can make up the tempo loss when you play the Horror and it also works greatly with Shudderwock.
With Hagatha's Scheme and now the new Hagatha herself, it looks like we may be heading towards a Control Shaman era. What do you think?
A new Scheme card for Rogue was revealed by @PlayHearthstone on Twitter.
The card also confirms King Togwaggle as an upcoming Rogue Legendary minion.
Now that we know that Scheme cards can update infintely, Togwaggle's Scheme looks absolutely insane. Pogo-Hopper decks have recently gained popularity and this new Scheme card fits perfectly into them. It can also fit into a Pirate Rogue deck. A lot of people have been comparing it to Jade Idol. The card is also pretty bonkers in Wild as well in the hands of Mill Rogue. With the right support, this card looks really powerful.
What do you guys think about this first card reveal from Rise of Shadows?
After the announcement of Rise of Shadows, Peter Whalen answered several questions on Twitter.
A new piece of information is that there will be no Hero cards in the upcoming expansion. Rise of Shadows will follow the trend set from previous expansions, with 2 Legendary cards per class and 5 neutral Legendaries.
One of the new mechanics of Rise of Shadows are Scheme cards that upgrade each turn they are in your hand. Apparently, they can upgrade forever! They also work with end-of-turn effects like Drakkari Enchanter (source). If you play Krag'wa, the Frog after you play Hagatha's Scheme, you will get a copy of the base form of the card (source).
As far as Lackeys are concerned, these new token minions are all 1-mana 1/1 and they can only be generated from other cards.
After clarifying that the smart deck builder doesn't support Wild for now, Peter Whalen launched into an extensive series of tweets about Hearthstone's Wild mode. The team is trying to keep Wild mode a place where everything is allowed, but at the same time they want to regulate stuff like Aviana, Naga Sea Witch, Yogg-Saron, Hope's End and Raza the Chained to maintain some sanity. No surprise there: Barnes has also been under the radar for a while. You can find the Twitter thread here.
Lastly, there are no plans for now to give Wild cards as rewards, but this may change.
